I love the romance of these outtakes from my recent shoot for Montana Bride magazine, and I especially love seeing them in this classic black and white film look. Our models did such a great job posing for us in a very romantic way that still looks like fashion. This shoot was very inspiring to see the talent that we could assemble in Billings Montana. We had such a great team! More from this shoot coming soon! See previous photos from this shoot here and here (http://blog.paulbellinger.com/2015/01/montana-wedding-photographer-fashion.html).

Tips for photographers:
These photos are lit with natural light from a large bank of windows about 20 feet from the models out of frame to the right. There are also two large 4x8’ reflector out of frame to the camera left bouncing a lot of the window light back on to the shadow side of the models. The windows at Billings Open Studio are North facing, so the light is always indirect and beautifully soft. Bounce it back with a huge reflector and you’ve got some super soft light with a hint of directionality from the windows. I have the same kind of light in my own studio and I love it. In fact, North facing windows have been revered by generations of artists, painters, sculptors, and photographers for centuries.
